    The Blue Earth Area School Foundation, a nonprofit organization, works to enhance the educational opportunities for the students of Independent School District 2860.

    History of the Organization

    The Blue Earth Area School Foundation was established in 1998. The Foundation is an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff and minimal overhead expenses, allowing the maximum benefit for our students.

     The Foundation seeks to reduce student fundraising activities by holding a limited number of Foundation fundraisers throughout the year. The largest of these events is the annual BUC$ NIGHT OUT Auction. Held each year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, this fun-filled evening unites people from throughout the district in supporting our students by bidding on a wide array of silent and live auction items.

    Since its beginning, over $455,000 of educational enhancements and programs have been provided for Blue Earth Area students – opportunities and items that would not have been possible without Foundation support.

    Purpose of the Foundation

    The Blue Earth Area School Foundation exists to support the mission of our local public school. The primary focus of the Foundation is providing funding for creative and innovative programs, activities and equipment that supplement and enhance the educational process.

    This District has creative employees with innovative ideas for improving the learning experiences of students, but moving forward requires additional resources. The Blue Earth Area School Foundation provides an efficient way for individuals and businesses to contribute to the success of our students and help build a strong and vibrant educational system. Education is a key economic development tool for the area. A strong school benefits all the surrounding communities.
